Kyumi McDonald

Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified in 2005 in South Korea and joined Medivet in 2007, becoming branch partner at Risedale in 2009. I've completed a programme in Equine Dentistry and Reproduction from Texas A&M University and have a masters degree in Control of Infectious Diseases in Animals. I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. I'm interested in small animal surgery, specifically laparoscopic and orthorpaedic surgeries. I love the relationship I have with all our clients and their pets, and am enjoying learning and progressing in my role everyday. At home I have a rescue cat called Garlie. Garlie had several serious health issues when he was first adopted, now with our tender loving care, he is totally transformed to be a happy, content and loving cat.

I joined Medivet in 2013 having graduated from the Royal Veterinary College. I started working at Risedale in 2014 and soon afterwards became a Branch Partner. I have a keen interest in Dermatology and Dentistry. I have a menagerie of animals at home including our two wonderful cats, Thomas and Layla who both came into Risedale as strays. I enjoy working at Risedale with our exceptional team but I am also very thankful to be looking after all the amazing animals which come through our door.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I joined Risedale in October 2022 and I am a final year nursing student due to qualify at the end of this year. I started at Medivet as a Patient Care Assistant in December 2020, where I learned the fundamentals of working in a veterinary practice and gained plenty of experience in patient care and handling to prepare for starting my training as a Student Veterinary Nurse in January 2022. Prior to working at Medivet, I completed a FdSc in animal behaviour and welfare at Berkshire College of Agriculture, which provided me with the opportunity to take part in conservation work in South Africa and at a wolf sanctuary in the UK. I enjoy all aspects of nursing, with a particular interest in imaging and feline nursing.

I’ve been training with Medivet since July 2023. I’m currently a Patient Care Assistant but beginning my role as a student nurse from April. I’m enjoying my journey at Medivet Risedale as we get a variety of cases and there are always lots of fur babies to cuddle. At home I have three cats called Bella, Jessie and Herbie, Herbie being a rescue from Medivet.

Medivet has a wonderful friendly atmosphere. The receptionist and the vet who dealt with me on my dogs first visit could not have been more helpful. I would recommend this practice to anyone.

Medivet was recommended to me by friends and i was not disappointed. All their staff were friendly and professional. They took their time with my puppy to make sure she was comfortable before doing any checks or vaccinations. Their healthcare plan is affordable and very beneficial to any pet owner. Overall i was very happy and would definitely recommend them to anyone
